Went to buy adver. TV, the store I went to didnt recieve any? I asked the mgr. if he could call one of the stores that did recieve them, so as to hold one for me, he said no cause it was a 1st come 1st serve. What was I, its not my fault they didnt have them. I asked him if more people had come by asking for the TV, when he said no, I told him people are probably use to you not having the ad. items!
When I go to any target store there is always more employees in the store then customers, now I know why. I called TARGET to verify if t.v. set was available. Asked if I could pay $250 of the $400 price today, and pay the balance the next morning and pick up t.v. then, was told “NO, entire price must be paid at time of sale”. I said “No problem, I’ll go to bank, come down and pay for the t.v. IN FULL, TODAY, but could you please hold it for 24 hours so that I could make arrangements to get a bigger vehicle as the t.v. is a 46″ flat screen.”
Was told “NO, against store policy” Now, I’m 46 years old and have been going to department stores all my life. Sears, Bradlees, Walmart, K-mart, Unclaimed freight, etc., I’ve NEVER seen or experienced a store try SO HARD to NOT make a sale as TARGET did this morning. I called their corporate office and talked to two levels of management and they did NOTHING to try and ammend things to allow me to purchase this set. What is wrong with you people??!!! You’re in business to SELL things!! And here I come with $400 IN HAND to try and BUY something from you and you pretty much tell me to ‘kiss off’?!!
I wasn’t asking you to store this thing for a MONTH for Christ’s sake, I said I’d be there THE NEXT MORNING TO PICK IT UP??!!!! TARGET lost a $400 sale today and a customer for life. You would think in THIS economy, with store chains folding left and right, that these people would do ANYTHING they could to keep sales up and accomodate their customers, but I guess TARGET could care less. I’m going to one of their competitors today to spend my money.
